DIGIC 4+ Image Processor

The new Canon DIGIC 4+ Image Processor powers the PowerShot ELPH 340 HS camera's advanced functions and capabilities, including Hybrid Auto, Creative Shot, and Full HD video shooting at 30p in the easy-to-share MP4 format. Its accelerated processing speed creates fast, responsive performance, for a shooting experience that's easy and natural. The DIGIC 4+ Image Processor also enhances image quality in several ways. Processing of high ISO shots has been shortened by 60% compared to the DIGIC 4 Image Processor. This significantly reduces noise for brilliant color, smooth gradations, and beautiful detail even in low light. The processor also allows for the integration of electronic Dynamic IS. This advanced system compensates for multiple motion types, effectively preventing angular blur, shift blur, and blur caused by parallel movement and tilt shift. The result is images that are reliably sharp and clear at all lengths of the camera's powerful zoom. The processor's highly efficient design also extends battery life.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Will this camera fit non-technical people?

    Used in its basic automatic setting, it is very easy to use. You will need to remove the battery to charge it, which I find inconvenient, but not difficult to do. This camera is small, so you might want to make sure she can handle it easily.

  • What is the lag time between shots for this camera? I'm looking for a small, compact camera that takes "quick" pictures!

    Not sure officially but it's fast! Really need to use the beat fastest memory card u can get to make sure pix are saved fast....the card makes a big difference

  • Can you take one pic after another quickly or does it take a long time to be ready (depending on resolution, of course)?

    You can set it to burst mode 10 frames per second. Good to have a class 10 SDHC card to, will speed up time between shots (image capture to memory).
